. >> thanks and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. you know what was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a ser

and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> that was one sample of what we heard. i also talked to another woman who said that she absolutely booed but she said she was not booing mitt romney, she was booing his agenda. vice president joe biden will be coming in here later on this morning. the president is not coming to the naacp. the white house says he has a scheduling conflict and that's why joe biden is here, but, soledad, i have to tell you if romney's aim yesterday was exciting the conservative base with that speech he gave to the naacp, he may have also excited the liberal base of the democratic party or at least african-american voters because i think this crowd will give joe biden a warm response when he gets into this hall later on this morning. as for mitt romney, later on today talking about speaking to your base, he is going to be holding a fundraiser in wyoming with none other than dick cheney. soledad. >> jim acosta for us. thank you. i should mention in a few minutes we'll be speaking with florida's lieutenant gov, jennifer carol, the first african-america

for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from houston hillary shell ton washington bureau director for the naacp. so, mr. shelton, what say you? >> well, you can't dismiss what either of these women said. i mean, quite frankly, the way that mitt romney came to the naacp was clearly not to garner support. if you have a better idea and quite frankly keep in mind the naacp is is nonpartisan and he e always invite candidates from at least both parties. sometimes the green party and other parties as well. if you want to garner support you at least meet people where they are at. we know that the biggest issue that got the strongest rebuke from our audience was the issue of healthcare. and it very well we knew that at the time that what mitt romney referred to as obama care which many found to be quite offensive in the manner in which he presented it was the affordable care act. at the time that bill was passed 47 million americans had no healthcare insurance. 47% of those were african-american. mr. romney came in and said he will repeal that to save money. but he didn't talk about what h

to discuss with you today. somebody had told us in the 1950's or 1960's that a black citizen would serve as the 44th president of the united states, we would have been proud and many would have been surprised. we might have assumed the presidency would be the last door of opportunity to be opened. before that came to pass every other barrier in the path to equal opportunity wycherley have to have come now. it has not happen quite that way. many barriers remain. in some ways the challenges are more complicated than before. across america and within your own ranks, there is serious debate about the way forward. if equal opportunity were it and accomplished fact, then a bad economy would be equal for everyone. instead is worse for african- americans and almost every way. in june while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2%, the unemployment rate for african-americans actually went up from 13% to 14.4%. americans of every backgrounder asking when the economy will finally recover. you in particular are entitled to an answer. if equal opportunity -- [applause] if equal opportunit

begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. race and mitt romney that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as we reported last night mitt romney was kind of brave to go down to the naacp convention in houston. he knew he would be speaking to folks who very much liked president obama. the analysis of mr. romney's speech is fascinating and says unflattering things about america. here is the backup. nbc news owns a web site directed mostly at african-americans. one of the employees on that web site went on tv yesterday and said this: >> i truly believe that mitt romney went into that room not to speak to the naacp but to speak to his base. if he really intended to speak to this civil rights organization, the oldest in our country, then he might have walked into the room and talked about how we fix basic public education because we know education disrupts poverty. >> bill: we'll get to the speaking to his base remark in a moment. now, either ms. taylor missed it or she is not being honest because during his speech the governor sp
